Rob started out with the goal of acquiring the extensive knowledge required to become an MVP. He failed. However, his follow up was to start speaking frequently and leading Arizona’s Southeast Valley .NET user group. Soon after, he was nominated and became an MVP.
To give back, Rob co-led two hackathons called AZ Give Camp in 2017. The “prize” for these hackathons was to build software for a charity. He contributed to the Humanitarian Toolbox, built a scheduling app for smoke alarm installs, and makes significant open source contributions to Gulp (a toolkit for automating and streamlining web development).
